THE PK25: HIGH-END PERSONIFIED

Time-tested craftsmanship, quality materials, and attention to detail are common elements to what makes a piece of furniture high-end. In the case of the PK25 by Fritz Hansen, though its simple form and raw materials don’t scream luxury, it is a gold standard of high-end furniture design. Designed by Poul Kjaerholm in 1952, the PK25, also known as the “Element” Chair, is characterized by its understated elegance, clean lines and remarkable attention to detail — modest in means, rich in expression.

Haute Living is proud to represent the Republic of Fritz Hansen, and all of its Poul Kjaerholm designs, including the PK25.

LEMA: A PARAGON OF ITALIAN & INTERNATIONAL DESIGN

Though the Italian design company, LEMA, staked its claim on the global furniture manufacturing industry 43 years ago, at its core was a continuation of a family tradition that’s nearly three quarters of a century old. What’s fascinating, however, is the immediate impact LEMA had on the Italian furniture market. Due in part to its strong principals, a new, forward-thinking management style, and innovative manufacturing processes, LEMA changed the game entirely.

Haute Living is extremely proud to carry the venerable LEMA brand, and we’re very pleased and excited to announce the arrival some of its most dynamic products now exhibiting in our Chicago showroom.

A NEW CUBISM: INTRODUCING TJ O’KEEFE'S DRIFT TABLE

Chicago-based designer TJ O’Keefe’s work, though minimalist in nature, extends beyond the principals of minimalism through their exacting measurements and precise scale, elevating the pieces to something greater than mere designed objects. O’Keefe’s Drift Table, based on a simple geometric form, is pared down and deftly cut to maximize function while its juxtaposition of glass and wood gives it a striking visual identity.

Haute Living is pleased to offer the designs of TJ O’Keefe, including the Drift Table, now on display in our showroom and available for ordering.
